This Is The Amount Of Sugar That Goes Into Your Favourite Singapore Sweet Drinks
Earlier today, it was announced that all ads for packaged drinks with high sugar content would be banned in Singapore, while drinks with medium-to-high sugar content would need to carry a label indicating that they are unhealthy.
While this affects packaged products, such as 3-in-1, canned beverages, and packet drinks, we thought that now was as good a time as ever to examine the sugar content of other sinful faves, such as kopi and barley juice.
The next time you shout out your drinks order at the neighbourhood kopi tiam uncle, remember this list.
